Beholding - Relational Somatic Healing
Module One: The Foundations
Lead Teacher: Shirley Dvir, MFT, Ph.D. Student
Teachers: Erica Berman MFT, Jacki Hull MFT, Lu Jackson MFT, Traci Uchida MFT.
Join us for a six-month course on healing developmental and relational wounds. Relational Somatic Healing is a unique modality that provides the client with an opportunity to study their relational habits and to fully experience a healthy bonding. By shifting clients’ way of connecting with their therapists in the here and now, clients can be more connected with themselves and others outside of the therapeutic setting. This transformational work can lead to lifelong changes such as regulation, resilience, embodiment, empowerment, and inner joy.
What will you learn?
Core principles of Relational Somatic Healing
Working with the internal state of the practitioner

- Deepening connection through statements and questions
How to utilize countertransference
